Europe in the mind is the first in a series of experiential workshops. We want to explore experiences, thoughts and feelings in the aftermath of a historical referendum; one which is likely to change the U.K.'s position in the European community and possibly the life of British and European citizens living in the UK.

 

WHY NOW ?

Since the announcement of the referendum results we have witnessed the emergence of complex feelings and a multitude of voices concerned with the ideas of identity, belonging, inclusion, exclusion, displacement, authority, leadership, accountability, responsibility and ultimately truth.

This is a crucial time to explore the way in which as individuals we relate to others and our roles within the groups, communities and organisations in which we belong. 

 

 

HOW?

We believe that experiences in groups provide an opportunity to understand our identity and our behaviour in micro and macro social environments. 

 

Each group of participants will form a temporary learning community, where individuals have an opportunity to explore their role and contribution to the group. 

As consultants we will assist with learning, and provide a setting for a variety of perspectives to emerge and be shared. 

WHO?

We are a team of social scientists, psychologists and organisational consultants trained in the Tavistock Tradition of Human Relations.

 

We share a common interest in socioanalytic methods, group psychoanalysis, community development, organisational dynamics and and social change. We want to open a field for discussion, reflection and transformation to all those who have an interest in thinking, sharing and changing perspectives, regardless of their opinion, identity, social or cultural status.
